I saw the Fluval U1 and U2 internal filters at the store the other day, and would like to use one of those to reduce noise. Has anyone had any experience with these?

For a 10 gallon tank, which one would be better? I will probably use the top spout output with aeration, so it creates some surface agitation, or would using an airstone's bubbles would be enough agitation?

I know the U2 will take up more room in the tank, so am considering using the U1. However, it does not have a carbon filter option with it, and am wondering if it would be better to use the U2 to at least have that option.

well I have used a diff fluval internal filter and it was junk. this one looks better though.

your tank is very overstocked as 10 gallon is not much room. if you intend on keeping your tank that stocked I would get a canister filter. here are some options....




but I would really suggest getting a bigger tank. a 29 gallon would be perfect and give you room to fill out your schools more.
